Campagnolo doesn’t manufacture different levels of performance. There is only one standard performance level that is a required from the legendary Italian name and the Potenza 11 Group is a telling example of the high standards that Campagnolo demands of its components.
Therefore, this top class aluminium groupset offers the same superior performance as corresponding carbon fibre products mounted on professional bikes. The only differences between the two versions are mainly due to minor changes in the construction material used. Potenza 11, synonym for strength and intensity, was constructed around these strengths. The last born 11+ Revolution is the Potenza 11 Group, which - as its name suggests - will help you smash you goals.
The grip body reproduces the asymmetry of the human hand, increasing the area of contact with the palm of the hand and providing different support positions for maximum safety in all riding positions. Due to their shape, the levers are always easy to reach without effort, regardless of your riding position and the size of your hand. A study on the position of the hands of road cyclists has highlighted 3 different riding positions depending on the track and riding style. Based on these studies, Campagnolo created the special and exclusive shape of the Ergopower brake levers to ensure safe and comfortable riding at all times. In addition, a special insert for large hands increases the distance between the shift levers and the handlebars by 8%, creating sufficient space for braking and shifting while maintaining maximum safety conditions. The Vary-Cushion system encloses the handle body and serves as a damper. The special geometry of this anti-allergenic hand protection rubber with different density absorbs the vibrations so that you can sit in the saddle for many hours without tiring or overstraining your hands. The Ultra-Shift shape of the levers allows a more powerful operation of the brake levers. Even with your hands on the Ergopower levers, strong and responsive braking is possible. Thanks to this advantage, professionals can talk in peace before they get serious.
The introduction of the Power Shift system makes it easier for Ergopower gears to control the front derailleur/gear. Thanks to the optimised design of the new 12/27 and 12/30 sprockets, shifting is just as smooth as with the larger 11-speed brothers. The Power Shift System mechanism shifts the chain down one sprocket and up three sprockets.
